Abstract: Hence in this paper the development of an algorithm for automated cause-consequence diagram construction is described. The algorithm builds on methods developed previously for fault tree construction, such as topology diagrams describing how components are linked together in a system, component decision tables, used to model component behaviour, etc. Using this information a set of rules have been developed which enable automatic construction of the CCD. Once constructed the diagram can be quantified to give exact system reliability. To demonstrate the feasibility of the approach the algorithm is applied to a simple example.
